IN MY OPINION
In my opinion, the lapse and inactivity on the part of the pleaders, the repliers can not be made to suffer and deny the arrears of the hires as per the 6th Pay Commission recommendation, which else they're entitled to. Every time the preceptors aren't supposed to approach the applicable authority for getting the benefit as and when there's a modification of pay as per the pay commission recommendations.
